  1. great product

    Posted by Steve Pond on 22nd Oct 2017

    in my opinion, a little expensive for a piece of plastic, but will save you the expense of a new radio/cd. Obviously this knob is of much higher quality than the original one . despite the very informative instructional video to install the knob, I had some trouble placing a piece back on, a phone call to the company resulted in the correct procedure to correct this. 5 stars Customer service

  2. Works great

    Posted by Al on 13th Sep 2017

    The video that shows how to replace this part was pretty clear, and easy to follow. I'm sure I saved quite a bit of money doing it myself, rather than have any mechanic or dealer try the repair (if they'd even attempt it). Obviously, the part seems expensive, given it's a little piece of plastic, but it's probably the cheapest option to have a perfectly functioning radio again.

  3. No package after 2 weeks

    I have no idea what has been going on at USPS but the package shipped June 14 was just processed out of Miami on June 26.
    I think another method of shipping is needed.

  4. Excellent product

    I recently purchased BMW E46 3 series Radio Volume Knob Repair Kit; this is a quality product and replacement in YouTube was able me to replaced it myself easily - Thank you for your service.

  5. worked great

    The part worked perfectly and it was seamless.

  6. If it's got to be done right!

    Posted by Ron on 27th Mar 2017

    There are several 'repair' videos on youtube that deal w/gluing or otherwise half-assing this repair, but I have owned my 330i ZHP since new (13+ years) and I don't do half-assed. This part is pricey, no doubt, but it is the cleanest of repair methods and corrects the weakness of the original part's design. My car doesn't owe me a thing, so I figured it was worth it to do the job right. Installation was easy thanks to the video. Thanks to Tom for taking the initiative to offer this proper solution!

  7. THANKS!!!

    Thanks to your video I was able to buy your part, and repair my E46s radio control button. I was just about ready to buy a new radio and you saved me the time, and money. THANKS!

  8. perfect replacement part

    Posted by F. Kent Thurston on 29th Nov 2016

    part arrived on time, was well packed, part quality is excellent, perfect fit, video instructions are good

  9. Works, video is great

    Posted by Unknown on 23rd Sep 2016

    Was a little worried about all the things that had to be removed from deck in order to get at the switch, but by following the video was able to dismantle it and get it back together with no problems. Now the stereo works and my wife is happy.

    Little spendy.

  10. Great Product! Great Instructional Video!

    Posted by robert4jc@sbcglobal.net on 4th Aug 2015

    Not only does the part work on an E46 Alpine radio (to fix the common broken on/off button problem), the step-by-step video on You Tube is excellent, easy to follow, and works!

    My only issue is $30 for a piece of plastic and two screws. But I suppose its better than tossing a $200-$300 radio.
